DNA (Delhi) - - STATE OF POLLS -

Raipur: In a last at­tempt to woo vot­ers ahead of the first phase of polling in Ch­hat­tis­garh, the rul­ing BJP will re­lease its “game changer” manifesto on Satur­day with spe­cial fo­cus on farm­ers and youth, state Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter Bri­j­mo­han Agrawal said.

The ‘San­klap Patar’ will be re­leased by BJP pres­i­dent Amit Shah here, Agrawal, who heads the BJP’s manifesto draft­ing com­mit­tee, said on Fri­day.

Satur­day is the last day of cam­paign­ing for the first phase of polling for 18 assem­bly seats in Ch­hat­tis­garh on Mon­day. The sec­ond phase, for the re­main­ing 72 con­stituen­cies, will be held on Novem­ber 20.

It will be a game changer. The manifesto will put forth the vi­sion for a new Ch­hat­tis­garh, which will be among the most de­vel­oped states of the coun­try by 2025, Agrawal said, Though he de­clined to share de­tails of the manifesto, he said it would fo­cus on farm­ers and youth and has been drafted with guid­ance from the party’s cen­tral lead­er­ship, in­clud­ing Shah.

In the last one decade or so, the state has emerged as the rice bowl of the coun­try and farm­ers’ in­comes have jumped man­i­fold. Our aim is that this should con­tinue in the fu­ture as well, he said.

Ques­tioned on the de­lay in re­leas­ing the manifesto, Agrawal said the party had

reached out to the peo­ple with var­i­ous teams trav­el­ling to dif­fer­ent parts of the state to seek sug­ges­tions.

It is the BJP’s doc­u­ment of its com­mit­ments to the peo­ple, he said.

In the last 15 years of the

BJP gov­ern­ment, the party has set up an ecosys­tem in the state, where so­cial jus­tice and de­vel­op­ment are com­ple­men­tary to each other, he said.

The party will work with the same agenda in the fu­ture as well, he added.
